COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Influenced by the classic Bamberg rauchbiers, our Mesquite Smoked Porter is brewed with a Texas twist, using malt smoked in-house over Texas mesquite. This dark mahogany porter has a velvety mouthfeel, and a roasty, dark chocolate flavor balanced with a subtle hop spice. The nose is warm and pleasing with aromas of cured meat, pepper, leather, dark roast coffee, and a distinct mesquite wood aroma. The Mesquite-Smoked Porterís medium body, rich complex taste of roasted grains, coffee, dark chocolate, and meaty, smoky character make this perfect for any Texas day, be it the cold of winter, or the accompaniment to a summer barbecue.

Pours pitch black with fluffy tan head. Smells extremely smoky and roasted, hints of chocolate and coffee. Tastes like liquid smoke with chocolate and coffee and a touch of pepper underneath. Medium-bodied with a velvety smooth texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Ranger Creek Mesquite Smoked Porter finishes smooth with a touch of smoky dryness.

Dark brown, tan creamy head and smoky flavor. All the flavors blend perfectly, the chocolate, coffee, roasted flavor and the smoky part are all great. Definitely will buy again

Very black pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is wonderful - mesquite wood, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit. Flavors follow the aroma. A truly nice and unique beer. Iíve had it both on tap at Ranger Creek and in bottles; both are excellent. Canít believe I hadnít put up a rating on this yet.

Bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours pretty black with a five finger creamy tan head. The aroma is smoked chocolate. Med+ body with frothy creamy carb. Flavor is really wood smoke with a lot of dark chocolate. Imagine a steak cooked over mesquite and then rolled in shaved chocolate? Minus the blood. Itís almost beefy. Finishes pretty much as it starts. Except maybe a little coffee is detectable. Damn good beer.

batch 007 courtesy of Kaggie97 via coldbrewky. deep dark oily black with ruby edges. Foamy tan head with amazing retention. Faint smoke and pepper in the nose bound by an inviting element of roast. Taste falls in order with a big but silky body. Sweet smoke lingers. What a treat.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2011
22 Oz bottle. Pours a deep brown/black with tan head. Aroma of smoked Mesquite (Iím from Texas, this is a great aroma and gets the women hot) and dark roasted grain. Flavor is much the same with a nice aggressive maltiness to balance out the smoke with a nice dark roasted grain bitter in finish. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy with medium-high carbonation, soft body...Overall, outstanding brew!

This was our third installment of the Texas beer roundup I had yesterday in my dining room with UDBeernut. Batch 007 11.9.11. Semi-buzzed rambling to the brewery over a discussion that I realy need to get me one of them there smart phones. My folks were up visiting as well this weekend. Ma stated that this "is like liquid smoked cheese...great cheese" as she reached for the bomber and helped herself. Go Ma! Tingle on the gums biting. Slate black with brown tone. Oily head. Spectacular lacing. Smokey gentle nose. Spectacularly rounded and robust in body. I get light pepper nearing the finish. Other than that this silky smooth beer was clearly the leader of the day. a Solid, benchmark porter. Yeah!

Bottle from Choice Beverages in McKinney. Pours black with a thin tan head. The aromas are mesquite, smoked ham, pepper, and roasted coffee. The mouthfeel is slightly watery and dry with a medium body, heavy bitterness and light carbonation. Excellent beer. Cheers!

Big smoke along with the expected chocolate/coffee porter notes. The Islay malt of beer. Like a medium-rare steak that got charred on one side. Delicious!

This beer smells like bbq and burning leaves. Very autumnal. Pours dark brown, almost black, with very small head and little lacing. Smooth, tongue-coating mouthfeel with little bitterness. Chocolate, smoke, leather, beef jerky. I wish I had a chopped sandwich with this beer
